    Seems more responsive than CP so far. Most of my apps and customizations done. Working quite well so far.

    I still have to run IE 10 (desktop app) in Compatibility Mode to have the Enter button work properly.

    IE 10 now includes Adobe Flash player natively so no more adding Flash Player to IE.

    Microsoft Media Player works great!

    Many Metro Apps work now.

    The Classic Start Menu works good too. (for anyone wanting to install it)
    But I did have to fuss with it, to get it to run on every boot.
    I had to do some RE-Programming on the Quick Shutdown shortcut to get it to work.
    I had to get it down to Shutdown.exe /s /t 00

    Windows Mail, is there, like in windows 7, but I can't make it work, like I could in Win-7. I'm hoping that some good H****r (programmer) will figure that one out, soon.
    If they won't let us use it, why leave it there,,,,,just to tease us? That's really STUPID! Right now, it's just taking up valuable space and frustrating the heck out of guys like me, who would like to use it.
